11:00 PM – Christmas Eve
Love. Joy. Hope. Peace. Our worship team is so excited to welcome you to gather together and celebrate God’s great love in Christ Jesus on Christmas Eve, Friday, December 24 at 11:00 PM. Make plans to ring in Christmas with us at the stroke of midnight as we give thanks to God for the gift of his Son!
Together, we will Listen…..as Mary humbly realizes she is the one chosen to bring the Savior into the world.
We will listen….as Joseph fearfully, yet obediently, obeys the angel’s instructions to take Mary as his wife.
Listen….. as the angels announce the birth of Jesus to the shepherds and sing,
“Glory to God in the highest!”
And listen to the voice of God declaring his infinite love for you and yours!
Kids are welcome to come in their pajamas and you are welcome to come as you are.
Together we will celebrate the “good news that will cause great joy for all the people”.
9:30 AM Sunday Morning Worship
“What’s Your Story?” Pastor Kevin will open God’s word with us from Luke 2 and focus on how we are called to share the story of our encounter with the Messiah just like the shepherds did after seeing Jesus. Bob Vlasblom will share his testimony of faith in Jesus and we will conclude with a celebration of the Lord’s Supper. The ARK and Sanctuary worshippers will combine in the sanctuary.
Thank You for your Gifts, Tithes, and Offerings
Thank you for your generosity to Christ’s Church. We encourage you to prioritize your local church in your giving because the local church is the bride of Christ, and Jesus is the hope of the world. We excel in the grace of giving when we honor God with our time, our treasures, and our talents.

Pastor Bob Huisman
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
And over all these virtues put on love,
which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3:12-14
